The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 needs to pack a punch to get the phone series back in the limelight. We have made a list of what we want from Samsung and its next flagship to help push the handset to the top of the pile.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was packed with full of features. But in many ways, the phone still feels like a minor upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which was released a year before.
Update: A Samsung Galaxy Note X report claims that the phone will not have any physical buttons. Plus, we can see the Galaxy S10 range for some clues.
So, while we are looking onward to the next version of Samsung’s outstanding phone, we are hopeful for more from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. We want generous, impactful variations and upgrades that help explain its certainly enormous price tag.
So far one of the real things we have got about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is that it will have a 6.6” screen. And we have heard that not once, but twice already!
That is more than 6.4” from the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Smartphone screens keep getting larger, and given that the Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus is 6.4” and we did expect the next Note to be larger than anything in the S series.
Note 10 will have a curved Super AMOLED screen. You can expect water resistance too, given that all recent Samsung flagships have that in common.
2. Best Camera as ever
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could also have a quad-lens camera according to report. The specifications of the lenses are not known yet, but it is likely that they would be the same as Galaxy S10 5G, a phone with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, a 12-megapixel variable aperture one, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and also a 3D depth-sensor.
Beyond that, we can take some of the educated guesses as to what the Note 10 might be. For one thing, based on the past form it will most likely use the same chipset as the Samsung Galaxy S10.
It means that either a Snapdragon 855 or an Exynos 9820, it depends on where you are in the world. They are both high-end though.
4. Fingerprint sensor
The Samsung Galaxy S10 also has an under-display fingerprint scanner and a camera cut-out in the screen, rather than a notch, so those are possible features of the Note 10.
5. S Pen
And of course, the S Pen will also make a return, with quite possibly with some new features and improvements.
6. Getting rid of buttons
Another report had an even thorough prediction: Note 10 will not have any physical buttons on the device. Instead, the Note 10 will use touch sensors.
7. Two models of Note 10
However, it is likely that there will be two different models of Samsung Galaxy Note 10, as we have heard many rumors that Samsung will release a mini Note 10 only in Europe.
The same report also says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has the model number “SM-N975F”. However, Note handsets typically have a ‘0’ as the last number, so there is a rumor that this could represent a 5G variant.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 release date and price
It is possible that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 launch date will around August 2019, as Samsung has announced new Galaxy Note handsets at some point in August.
The Galaxy Note 9, for example, was released on August 9, 2018, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was released on August 23 of 2017.
Galaxy Note 10 will be announced at least a couple of weeks before you can buy it, so don’t be astonished if it does not hit the stores until late August or September 2019.
As for Samsung Galaxy Note 10 price, Note 9 starts at $1,000 and it gets more expensive if you want to have more storage and more RAM.
Given that smartphone’s prices usually seem to be rising we do guess that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will cost at least this much.
